All Hands on Tech: Craft, Pedagogy & the Digital Challenge

Research Wednesdays: Presentation from Dorie Millerson and Lynne Heller from the Material Art & Design Program

All Hands on Tech: Craft, Pedagogy & The Digital Challenge

Wednesday, November 22, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Research Wednesdays

All Hands on Tech: Craft, Pedagogy & the Digital Challenge

What does “handmade” mean in the digital age? OCAD U faculty Lynne Heller and Dorie Millerson (MAAD chair) will consider the place of digital craft at OCAD University from the perspectives of faculty, staff and technicians. Developed organically out of the everyday experiences of practitioners at OCAD U in Material Art & Design (MAAD), a department rooted in craft processes and materiality, the presentation will question how digital craft methods are changing teaching and learning in the studio and speculate how to understand objects that are produced by digital tools instead of through embodied making methods.

An exhibition of works by Dorie Millerson

Dorie Millerson, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Design, will be exhibiting three pieces in the Rijswijk Textile Biennial 2013 which opens this week. A catalogue is available with text written by art historian Frank van der Ploeg.

“Twenty international artists will be exhibiting the ‘state of the art’ from the world of textile art. Their work displays a virtuoso balance between the latest technology and traditional handwork. The combination of tried and tested textile techniques such as weaving, quilting and embroidery with photography, video and digital technology results in a contemporary visual language. Furthermore, what is particularly striking is the strength of engagement with social themes among a number of the exhibitors: a powerful message cloaked in soft textiles.”
